Darby Dental Supply Sponsors Career Day


Memphis, TN – May 16, 2008 – Darby Dental Supply, LLC, the largest all-telesales distributor of dental merchandise, with its national distribution hub in Memphis, recently sponsored Westhaven Elementary School’s Career Day, which occurred on Monday, May 12th, and kicked off the school’s College Week program. The PK-5 public school has approximately 400 students and is located at 4585 Hodge Road in Memphis.

Specifically, Darby donated goodie bags for students that included a variety of oral health products, such as G-U-M® brand toothbrushes and toothpaste, Darby’s own SuperDent dental floss and toys such as bouncy balls and stickers, plus every student received a Darby baseball hat.


“We’re happy and grateful that Darby supplied goodie bags that are not only fun, but also encourage proper oral hygiene habits among our students,” said Kiki Jones, a teacher at Westhaven Elementary and the organizer of Career Day. “The Darby goodie bags are an excellent candy alternative and were a very appropriate takeaway item for this event.”

That’s because the importance of proper oral hygiene was an important topic at this year’s Career Day. Local Darby representative Trise Alexander and local Memphis-area dentist Dr. Joseph McLaurin provided Westhaven Elementary students with oral care instruction, distributed educational materials and recommended regular check-ups and cleanings.
“It feels good to know that our business of national dental product distribution can have a positive influence on the children in our own backyard,” said Darby President Gary Rosenberg. “We are proud to support the commendable efforts of Ms. Jones, the staff of Westhaven Elementary and
Dr. McLaurin.”
